Mary to the Sa-viour's tomb
Hasted at the early Dawn
For a-while she linger-ing stood,
Spice she brought, and sweet perfume,
But the Lord she loved had gone;
Filled with sorrow and surprise,
Trembling while a crystal flood
Issued from her weeping eyes.

But her sorrows quickly fled,
When she heard his welcome voice;
Christ had risen from the dead,
Now he bids her heart rejoice,
What a change his word can make,
Turning darkness into day!
Ye who weep for Jesus' sake,
He will wipe your tears away.
